TAKE A BREAK(BUT HAVE YOUR TISSUES TO HAND)
I am not a huge fan of celebrity magazines, I would rather read about true life than people who on the whole have no idea what it is like in the real world, so I am a regular buyer of Take A Break magazine.
I do not know how long this magazine has been running but I suspect it is quite a few years now. As magazines go it costs a reasonable 80p each week and it is jam packed!
You wont find pages of glossy ads in fact it has very few adverts at all.
My main reasons for buying Take A Break are the competitions, they are in various forms:- crosswords, word search. sudoku and many others, and although they are not particularly difficult they are enjoyable to do. The prizes are well worth winning(although I have never won!). There is always a car among the prizes! And often a holiday. You can enter them all on the same form or e mail them or text them in, I personally e mail my answers in.
There is the obligatory "problem page" and several other features including:-
beauty questions and answers
readers tips and photographs
There is usually a topic that they run for several weeks, recently it has been about our troops in Afghanistan and their families.
There are always a lot of True Life stories in Take A Break and this is where the down side of the magazine comes in. Some of them are heart breaking! Particularly ones about children and often they bring tears to my eyes. They do feature some happy true life stories, families reunited etc but on the whole they are very sad and depressing.
I know real life is often sad and if the magazine is going to do "real life stories" there are going to be some depressing ones but I do wish Take A Break would give us a few more happy endings.
On the whole it is a good couple of hours entertainment for only 80p! I would definatly recommend Take A Break.
Not may adverts
No celebrity stories
The stories can be very sad.
Summary: A good few hours entertainment
